Joy Garland

Name 2 things that your Grail sisters may not know about you.

That I helped to found Stuyvesant Cove Park along the East River in 1999 and became the first Executive Director of the Stuyvesant Cove Park Association and led programs in Solar 1.

What do you think is one of the biggest challenges facing the world today?

Getting people to understand and work together to address Climate Change and the refugee crisis. To do this we need to learn as much as we can and then be sure to vote.

Which Grail sister would you like to know more about?

It’s hard to pick just one, but both Kate Devlin of Massachusetts and Kate Sellers of Cincinnati, come to mind as younger Grail members and both leaders who can reach out to to their peers and contribute to the growth of the Grail with new ideas and insights.

What are you doing as your Grail mission focus or work?

I serve with other NGO Grail sisters on the UN Committee on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples and host our monthly Grail Climate Action Circle to study Laudato Si and plan actions in NYC.

Name 2 of your favorite things.

A walk in the park and minestrone soup!

Final Thoughts … 

We are in another “elbow in time” and we need the Spirit to guide us and Love to lead us on.
